Golf Course Opening Slated for May 16



The Tahoe Donner Golf Course officially opens for the 2014 season May 16. With early season conditions the best they’ve been in the last seven years, this is one of our earliest openings ever.

The 18-hole championship golf course will be open for play to the public and homeowners seven days a week for the season starting May 16. Tahoe Donner’s driving range opened for the season April 19 and is open daily.

Clinics and Instruction

Tahoe Donner Golf Course offers daily one-hour clinics for all skill levels throughout the season. New last season, twilight clinics are also offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Clinics are scheduled for approximately 60 minutes and the cost is $20. Clinics run from June 9-September 7.

Tahoe Donner also offers Get Golf Ready, a learning program that includes a series of five golf lessons for only $99. Instruction is targeted to the new or lapsed golfer and there is a maximum of 10 students per group lesson. The lessons cover golf basics including putting, chipping, the full swing, course etiquette and general rules of golf. Get Golf Ready starts early June. Check with the pro shop at 530-587-9443 for specific times and dates.

For junior golfers, the Tahoe Donner Golf Course offers Junior Golf Schools.

Early Season Rates for Season Passes and Packages

Volunteer



Get involved by volunteering with Tahoe Donner!

Tahoe Donner’s volunteer program provides members with an opportunity to get involved in the Tahoe Donner and Truckee/Tahoe Community. You can get involved and get first-hand experience in providing recreational opportunities and benefits to amenities through various opportunities including event preparation and crew participation, club related volunteer events/activities, and leadership of other volunteers.

Additionally, we will be linking members who are interested in volunteer work with Tahoe Donner club activities and events, as well as Truckee/Tahoe events like Truckee Clean Up Day and the annual Truckee River Day. Tahoe Donner clubs such as the Tennis Club, Friends of the Tahoe Donner Trails Club, Senior Alpine Ski Club, and Men’s Golf Club all have a multitude of activities and events with volunteer aspects to make their programs successful.

Our most recent Board of Directors Election is also an excellent example of volunteerism in Tahoe Donner.  We have five very active volunteers who have committed their time to be on the board of directors, but they are also supported by active volunteer committees which provide excellent resources for the board and management alike.  We thank them for their efforts and continued commitment to Tahoe Donner.

Summer 2013 Trails Volunteer Opportunities

We have had a great turnout for various volunteer events this summer, including the June Trails Day, Golf Course and Downhill Ski Area clean up days, Sugar Pine tree planting, and Alder Creek Meadows clean up day. We’ll have another clean up day in September. See our Trails Volunteer page for more information and updates.

How You Can Get Involved:

Request to be on the Tahoe Donner Volunteer Group. Individuals, families or groups on this list will be contacted for every volunteer opportunity. Tahoe Donner Volunteer Group enrollment requests are made directly to Annie Rosenfeld, Director of Facilities and Risk Management at arosenfeld@tahoedonner.com.

Request to be on a specific event volunteer list. Individuals, families or groups can request to be on a specific event volunteer crew. Specific TDA Management contact will be given for each event for members to contact and enroll for volunteer activities.

Get involved with a Tahoe Donner chartered club. Many of the chartered clubs have active volunteer programs which directly benefit their “home” amenity.

Finally, offerings of upcoming volunteer events will be communicated in the Monday Member email blasts. If you are not receiving this important Tahoe Donner business-related communication, please email comdep@tahoedonner.com to request enrollment.
